Mark Your Calendars for Saturday, Feb. 17 For Speech Trek Contest by Liz Jordan

It’s the future of the movement for gender equity. It’s the best feel-good event of the AAUW year. It’s a chance to see a dozen young people from the Elk Grove Unified School District high schools speak to the topic: “How do we stand-up to sexism?”

Please join us at Cosumnes River College in Room #150 of the new Winn Center. Easily accessible off Bruceville Road from 9 a.m. to noon. The setting is inspirational, the speakers are tomorrow’s leaders, and the issue is timely. These high school students will have 6 minutes to compete for cash awards of $100, $250 and $500.

Everyone, even those with handicap placards, must pay the $2 parking fee, so be sure to find the pay station before leaving your car. Otherwise, this event is free to members and the public. Bring a friend!
